MN. Republican State Rep Under Fire For Racially Suggestive Tweet

Racist or nah???

Via Dailymail:

A Minnesota Republican state representative has drawn ire for a racist tweet he made about the NBA. ‘Let’s be honest, 70% of teams in NBA could fold tomorrow + nobody would notice a difference w/ possible exception of increase in streetcrime (sic),’ Pat Garofalo tweeted.

Twitter users jumped on the state rep immediately, with many offended by his racist comment and others in disbelief that he didn’t have the foresight to censor himself in such a public forum. It’s unclear what prompted the incredible tweet, but Garofalo does have a history of NBA-hating.
‘GREAT IDEA – How about a New ESPN channel that covers all sports except the NBA. Joke players. Joke teams. Joke league,’ he tweeted last year.

Pat Garofalo has since deleted the tweet of course. SMH.
